Are there plans to enable touch screen compatibility in the Windows version of Chromium Edge? Specifically:

 

  • Fix press-and-hold right-click bugs
    • Pressing and holding in page content doesn't currently trigger the square to indicate when a right-click has been activated
    • Pressing and holding in the toolbar triggers the square to indicate a right-click, but it doesn't go away
  • Ability to reorder toolbar items (favorites and extensions) with touch
  • Ability to drag text (into a new tab, into text boxes, or into Collections) with touch
  • Modify controls that appear only on hover (e.g. selection tool in Collections and delete button on autofill items) so that they appear all the time so they can be selected with touch (a workaround for the Collections issue to make a "select" button to show the select buttons)
  • Fix text selection behavior to match that of the Windows system and other Windows apps (where tapping a word only once will select it, instead of the current behavior where you have to press and hold and it also shows the right-click menu) for consistency and improved user experience

Classic Edge was great for touch screens, and it's a shame to see that there has been no improvement whatsoever in this area for Chromium Edge.
